RIP Credit Rating: Steam Introduces Daily Deals

Steam has probably accounted for 85% of my impulse purchases for the past few years, and more than 70% of those games I haven’t even played. This time, they’ve taken it too far with the announcement of daily deals, on top of their midweek and weekend deals. Seriously Steam, why must you do this to us?  You’re honestly telling me I should get Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising instead of food for my dog? This is exactly the kind of first world problem that’ll bring about the collapse of Western civilization.

Allen is an utter whore of a gamer; he's completely open-minded to all games, be they AAA blockbusters or $5 casual children's games. His focus is on indie games specifically, valuing gameplay and ingenuity over sparkly visuals and ridiculous gimmicks. When he's not geeking out over the newest art game, he's out toning his sexy, sculpted shoulders while surfing epic 1.5ft waves, or having a good time with local, high-gravity microbrews.
